    I know this person who died in this accident. another victim of a evil driver. Shashidhar was such a nice person and only bread earner in the family. Left behind his wife and 2 kids. will the lorry owner or driver will feed them for their life time ? Why can't this be adopted like seize the existing properties of the driver and give as a one time compensation to Shashidhar's family and also it should be a life time penalty for the driver to give some monthly amount to Shashidhar's family. That could be a lesson for him and life time punishment. Pity on Shashidhar's family.
